Well here it is, the new year. It doesn't really feel any different than 2008 did, except that there is one major change: My BAND!

This is my year. By this time next year I anticipate I will be in onderland; I will realize that I have mirrors in my house; I will enjoy going out to functions; I will enjoy shopping for clothes; I will not be traumatized when I get into airplane seats or amusement park rides; I will feel better about myself being naked in front of DH; and I WILL get a matching set of lingerie for the first time ever!

I made a commitment to myself that I will become best friends with my band and help her help me. I also have my tattoo -- BELIEVE -- to remind me whenever I put hand to mouth that I have committed to myself.

And this is the last time I will look like this *shudder*:

Yes, 2009 is the beginning of the end of never having my picture taken, too. Thank God for the Hawaii trip we took in October, otherwise I would have no before pics!

  3. Thanks, y'all. I dunno... they way I ate tonight... lol. Though really it wasn't bad. Went out to a steak place here and got a fantastic salad. One of those large, meal-sized ones. With grilled chicken. And mangos. And grapes. And cashews. It was fantastic. Had a little bit of hubby's steak too, but it was only about a half-dozen bites. So all in all, it wasn't a BAD meal, just lots of it. Doubt I'll make it the full month before getting my next fill.
